Applying force and moment in symmetry

    • Johnson

      Hi all,

      I inserted a symmetry plane in my model and I am not sure how to apply the loads correctly. I would like to put shear force in - y direction and moment around x in the selected surface. The other side has fixed support. You see my model down below. 

      Am I correct if I use half of shear force and half of the moment to get the same stresses like in a full model?

      Where do I apply the loads, do I have to insert a coordinate system in my centroid of the surface or use a remote point?
